Never change the forum design (unless it is a logo)

For when my internet chucks the shits and is 10kp/s. This forum is the only page I can load!
The forum design is great!
It doesn't need a 1mb background and complex HTML(5) and Javascript

By all means, change the logo up top! Infact please change the logo with the Winamp Enthusiast banner it looks epic!


Opinions?

it all needs to be replaced including changing the forum software so what you want is unlikely to mean it stays the same (and that header image won't be used).

i meant the forum software needs to be updated which would likely mean using the same software we already use (especially as it's more likely to be easier to update without having to mess around with converting the forum database and the 14 years of data in it). but that is just speculation as there is nothing in stone on what will or will not happen (as covered in other threads).

If the site linked below is what you are referring to, then I hope not.

It's not the host country. The support for different languages is great. The size of the posting area is larger than necessary and the background color of the page is too bright, imo.

I hadn't tried actually using the site, so the mechanics could be great. But, just browsing thru kinda hurt my eyes. The smaller posting area of this site lets me read posts faster. The gray borders and less bright white backgrounds are easier on my eyes.

Color schemes are less important than other things, but they help when trying to read thru a lot of stuff.

They are Belgium based with people from other parts of the world UK and US) with a primary European basis (which is how the Winamp user base has been for a while). If you're so clearly prejudiced about where the company is based and the people working for it, then maybe Winamp isn't the program to use for you.

there are bigger things to focus on than the layout / styling of the forum since we really need the underlying software to be updated and i doubt any of that will happen until we're closer to having new Winamp clients available. and most of the layout, etc is completely dependent upon the forum software (as hacking it up is more hassle than it's worth). and if anything, the generally flat look is somewhat back in-vogue again (is mainly the buttons that don't fit with that style).

Why update a look completely when you can wait for it to mostly come back in style, good thinking DrO

*If you have issues with Winamp, ensure you have the currently latest version Winamp v5.666 build 3516 & its patches that fix several issues
*To remove the currently dead Winamp online stuff, see here: removing online stuff
*If you miss the Autotag feature: Gracenote CDDB Autotag alternatives

I still carry my fanny pack (I don't wear it). I rather carry small items and change in it, than stuff this stuff in my pockets. It is pretty worn and ratty looking. I wish I could find a new one (all I see now are backpacks).

Put a fanny pack on your shoulders as if it were a backpack, congrats now you have an instant one strapped backpack .. albeit an extremely ratchet looking backpack.


Its name though.... "fanny pack" theres so many things wrong with that name on so many levels that itd be impossible to even begin listing them lol.
